REVIEW ➞ Our Star-Crossed Kiss by Piper Rayne


She’s got two strikes against her.
Her name is Erickson and her parents own The Bagel Place.

It wasn’t always that way. When we were nine, we were best friends. But then a feud between our dads ripped their successful business apart—and my best friend was ripped away too.

Our paths were bound to cross again. When both our families vie for the same spot on a Food Channel’s reality show, the producers decide to change the format, aligning us as allies.

In order to get our parents to agree to work together, Evan asks me to pretend to be her boyfriend, but I dare her to up the ante—be my fiancée. Fake fiancée… obviously.

As usual, I didn’t think things through. Turns out our parents have a lot of demands neither one of us expected. And all those demands lead to things feeling more real than fake.

She smiles. It shouldn’t make me happy as shit that I pulled a smile out of her, but it does.


Seth and Evan’s story one I have been waiting for since the beginning. Two rival bagel shop owners who are unfortunate victims of a family feud. Our Star-Crossed Kiss is like a modern Romeo and Juliet without the tragedy.

I love Seth and I have from the beginning. He is such a sweetheart. He is hardworking and an amazingly talented photographer. He is also a mama’s boy and will do anything for her, even if that means entering to be in a food reality show. Evan works hard running the bagel shop her family owns, it is her life, however, it isn’t what she truly wants to do, so when the opportunity comes up to enter the same reality show she takes it.

Seth and Evan have chemistry from the start. They haven’t always been enemies; they were nine when the feud between their families started. They were best friends prior to that, they did everything together and everyone thought they would end up married one day. Now that they are forced to work together there is still the chemistry, however, they both keep it pretty physical in the beginning.

I loved getting more with the other couples of the Rooftop Crew that we’ve grown to love and Blanca was killing me when it came to the little game. Plus, the little bits we got of the upcoming couples has me impatiently waiting to return to Clifton Heights!!

Our Star-Crossed Kiss is a sweet, banter filled, somewhat forbidden romance that will have you laughing and smiling the entire way through! A MUST READ!!!
